God uses whom He pleases
People in the early church, and for that matter in the modern church also, sure like to go after Paul. He even had to defend himself to a church that he had established, saying to them,
“For I consider that I am not at all inferior to the most eminent apostles” (2 Corinthians 11:5).
The thing that some early and modern Christians miss is that the Lord Jesus Christ chose to use Paul. If that is what the Lord Jesus Christ wants to do, who are we to argue against that? Truly, we should accept all whom the Lord accepts, otherwise, He will reject us.
